Halloween App of the Week: Candies 'n Curses

Candies 'n Curses

Candies 'n Curses is a "spooky sugar-coated platformer" where you play as the adventurous Molli Pop. The game begins with a long opening that introduces Molly and explains her motivation, a dare from friends, for investigating her town's alleged haunted house. Upon entering, Molly gets locked in the house where she meets the ghostly butler who asks her to clean up some of the bad ghosts with her flashlight. Molly must survive 6 different regions of the Phantom King's mansion while taking out ghosts, skeletons and other spooky things.

Halloween App(s) of the Week: Prey Day and more

Prey Day: Survival

Prey Day: Survival is a zombie survival game that is almost identical to Last Day on Earth. It takes place in the city of Harbortown which has been destroyed by a mysterious virus. You must collect materials to craft tools and build your own shelter while completing side missions to investigate the cause of infection that wiped out most of the population. Unlike Last Day, Prey Day promises a "huge online" world at launch. Players can communicate with other players to form clans, complete clan missions and establish a clan base. You can also go solo and fight other players to steal their loot.

iOS App of the Week: Sid Meier's Civilization VI now available for the iPhone

Sid Meier's Civilization VI

We interrupt the Halloween App of the Week to bring you this PSA: Sid Meier's Civilization VI is now availble for the iPhone, and it is currently 60% off. It was a pleasant surprise when Aspyr Media originally released a full port of Civilization VI for the iPad. I never considered the chance that they would bring it to the iPhone, but I was wrong, this week the iPad version has been updated with iPhone support.

Halloween App of the Week: Where Shadows Slumber

Where Shadows Slumber

It's that time of year again when we search the App Store for the spookiest games for the iPhone and iPad. Where Shadows Slumber is a puzzle game that utilizes light and perspective to create an atmospheric adventure perfect for the Halloween season. There will be lots of comparisons to Monument Valley, but Where Shadows Slumber also reminded me a lot of Lara Croft GO. If you like surreal puzzle games that include an engrossing story then this is an app you'll want to check out.
